Ok, this isn't a prayer persay, but helps me disperse many heedless thoughts. Believe me, I have more than my share. It was a verse by a deveta to help a monk put his mind where it belonged.


From inappropriate attention
you're being chewed by your thoughts.
Relinquishing what's inappropriate,
contemplate
appropriatly.


Keeping your mind on the teacher,
the Dhamma, the Sangha, your virtues,
you will arrive at
joy,
rapture,
pleasure
without doubt.


Then, saturated
with joy,
you will put an end
to suffering & stress.

-- SN IX.11: Ayoniso-manasikara sutta


I hope that is of interest to all of you. Metta.
